Bialystok-Grodno District (German: Verwaltungbezirk Bialystok-Grodno) was an administrative division of German-controlled territory of Ober-Ost during World War I (after the Gorlice–Tarnów Offensive). It was bordered by the Lithuania District to the north.[1][2]

History[edit]

The area was formed roughly by parts of the former Grodno Governorate of the Russian Empire.
